president obama would like to see susan rice as the secretary of state? >> well, let's say 50%. >> you're putting at a fair 50? >> i would say 50%. the other 50% is that susan rice is a proxy for this president. i said it before, i'll say it again, there's been a witch-hunt after every prominent person of color that's servinged alongside the president, and this is part of it. >> sean: this narrative continues, and as a conservative i resent, because it's a false narrative trying to portray every conservative as against minorities. that is a lie. that's an outright lie, yet this is a news organization, prominent, nbc news. what is your reaction to this constantly coming up? >> i think it's wrong-headed. again, i think it's cheap. i don't know why you can't just address the substance of the issue. again, i just think it's hypocritical given that the treatment you've seen for black conservatives, the number of times that they have raised the race issue as to why a black conservative could really be a conservative. so i think they're the ones that should be on the hot seat here for questio
